So excited to see a bulk food and spice store in Grand Rapids. It is a connvenient location with plenty of street parking. There are bins and bins of bulk flours, dried fruits, rice, beans, etc. I've found it a great way to get fresh products at reasonable prices and also explore cooking with new whole grains and flours. I look forward to seeing their spice collection grow and they seem to be adding new items every couple weeks. A great local store to frequent with friendly and helpful staff. They were also dog friendly and offered my dog who sat outside (somewhat patiently) some dog biscuits they carry in the store, bonus points! (:

Today I am thankful that Proprietary is open and serving the community. Victoria was so helpful the moment I walked in.
I arrived an hour before closing with two small jars determined to finally bake my own bread. .
Victoria helped me with not only measurements but also told a little bit about the ingredients I need to make my bread fluffy with that stretchy doughy texture I'm after.
She helped me with a recipe and I bought yeast, salted cashews, and bread flour.
The space is very clean, you must wear a mask and provided gloves when picking ingredients
Thank you again Propriety for all your support, kindness, and help to finally gain confidence in the kitchen.
I will be back next week to buy ingredients to make homemade rice :) See you soon!
Enjoy the sunshine,

You need to check this place out. Proprietary is an amazing family owned and ran shop, from pasta to dried fruit, spices to teas, you'll surely find something you need! Today's purchases include dried mangoes, almonds, granola and flour, all fairly priced and super high quality, will be back for more! The staff were incredibly helpful and the store has proper Covid-guidelines in place to make everyone feel safe!

Love this store! It's so convenient to stock up on nuts, spices, and teas in smaller quantities. Plus no packaging waste is huge plus. Highly recommend the trail mix varieties and dried fruit, so good!

I've been there twice now. I don't know her name but the lady who works there is so sweet and informative! I'm so happy they have started a bulk foods store in Grand Rapids.

This place is so cool! They have bulk spices, grains, beans, and teas. They also have bar soap, liquid castille soap, eco friendly dish brushes, toothbrushes, and some food storage containers. Great place if you're trying to be more eco-friendly or zero-waste. Reasonably priced too. I love it!

A great resource if you're trying to move toward zero-waste! Good selection, clean, and friendly service. I also thought it was reasonably priced--I got a good amount of food for what I spent.

I am excited to have a place like this open here! There is a broad selection of ingredients. I am going back for more spices and nuts. There are other products for sale like refillable containers and teas. They provide hand sanitizer and gloves. Help the salesperson out and take your scoop, teaspoon etc to the counter. They wash and sanitize after EACH use. You can bring your own containers and can sanitize them before you shop. If you don't have them with you, there are plastic bags for you to use that you can compost later. I am looking forward to my next visit to stock up on some more products. Be aware, the gloves I had available that day were powdered. I will bring my own next time..I wore my powder badge to work that day! Well worth your time and money to shop!

My husband and I drove from Grand Haven since I have been wanting a store like this locally for a long time. They are very friendly and walk you through all of the steps so you know what you’re doing. They are being cautious with current situations. The selection is more than I could have asked for and I’m excited to try some new recipes without having to buy more than the recipe requires.

Amazing selection, great and friendly customer service. Definitely will be back again.
